As a parent, a sister, a brother, an uncle or aunty, a grandparent, a guardian, a friend, a colleague…. We rally together as a support network to help kids with cancer get through an incredibly long, emotional and tiring cancer treatment journey. Although we as adults carry it on our shoulders, kids seem to be so resilient and fight their way through such a journey much better than us. As a support network, we go over and above and do what we can to bring positivity to a situation in so many ways and through so many avenues.
Only one of many, but a serious cancer, is Ependymoma, the third most common form of paediatric brain cancer. One in three children will relapse with a poor prognosis. As much as this is hard to hear, no matter who we are, we will stay positive and throw ourselves into supporting and helping these families as much as we can.
Kids with Cancer Foundation are finding a cure for Ependymoma, committing to a 2 year contract to fund the position of a “National Study Co-ordinator” working on a ground breaking clinical trial at Sydney Children’s Hospital to cure this horrible disease.
Funding this position at a cost of $108,000 per year, has us digging deep and working hard to find the income to support this position. To contribute and help our efforts, an Australian Boxer, Ben Hussain, has jumped on board to help us raise much needed funds to continue to fund this important position.
Ben is an ambassador for “iSponsor”, an app that is revolutionising fundraising by turning your everyday spending into fundraising dollars. This is where you come in. This is the busiest time of year to be shopping, with Christmas just around the corner, you can help Ben raise money for kids with cancer this festive season, just by doing your online shopping through the iSponsor app. Whether you are shopping fashion, booking trips away or even just going out for coffee, you can be the change this Christmas.
We implore you to help Ben’s fight and join us to find a cure. Start shopping now through iSponsor and start giving today.
